Helford Passage - River Helford SUP Explore

Stand Up Paddleboard - Helford River

Suitable for novice (in calm conditions) and advanced paddlers, the River Helford offers both easy access to the stunning coastline of Falmouth Bay and to the tree lined river and it's creeks.  The River is home to many wading birds including herons and oyster catchers and there are vast swathes of oysters visible at low tide.  The water is clear particularly to the east making a firm favourite for wild swimming and paddle sports.     

The Lizard - Porthallow, Porthkerris and Porthoustock

The Lizard - Porthallow, Porthkerris and Porthoustock

The small pebbly beaches give access to a quiet, beautiful and unusually industrialised area of coastline, well worth the journey there.  There are many rocky outcrops to explore.  Particularly notorious is the Manacles, stretching offshore just south of Porthoustock, as the name suggests over 200 boats have been shipwrecked on them.  The Manacles provides home to Marine Wildlife and is protected.

SUP in a Bag run guided Group SUP Tours from Porthallow and will be running some beach side SUP & Camp Weekends in 2016 Contact us if you are interested.

Padstow, Dennis Cove

Padstow, Dennis Cove

Beach, river, estuary or creek, even arrive in style in Padstow.  This location has it all.  Located next to the Camel Trail just 1 km from Padstow, you can launch from the small rocky beach or opt to camp at Dennis Cove Farm Campsite which has its own slipway.  

Little Petherick Creek is a great trip, near to the put in and more sheltered than the estuary.  A beautiful journey up to Little Petherick, passing egrets and herons in a beautiful landscape.  At big spring tides (once a month) you can reach the Old Mill House pull the board up on the patio for a cream tea

Maenporth

Maenporth

A beautiful spot, clear blue waters and amazing views over a busy and very interesting bay.

This is a calm cove, south of Falmouth.  It is a little quieter than the other Falmouth beaches.  It is a great location to pootle around in or explore the nearby rocky coves.  Explore the wreck of the Ben Asdale wrecked on and tucked behind the rocks just on the East headland.  Perhaps paddling for an ice cream north east at Swanpool.

The Gannel and Crantock Beach

The Gannel and Crantock Beach

One of our favourite spots and recommended for your first trip. The lower part of the Gannel River meanders gently from the Newquay boating lake through a salt marsh before it opens out on to the spectacular Crantock Beach.  It is the perfect spot for refining your technique and either playing, paddling upriver or having fun in the surf.  Suitable for all abilities dependant on local conditions.
